IISc And TalentSprint Partner To Create Talent Pool Of 5G-Ready Professionals
The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and TalentSprint have joined hands to create an expert pool of 5G-ready professionals. The collaboration will open up a new world of connectivity and enable a slew of high data rate and low latency communications that are crucial to bringing Artificial Intelligence (AI) and augmented reality applications to life, advancing the Internet of Things, and fueling personal communications.
Both the institutes will offer specially curated PG Level Advanced Certification Programme to assist tech professionals be at the forefront of the evolving 5G in hyper-connected communication space and myriad of other applications across various industries.
Chandra R Murthy, Department of Electrical Communication Engineering at IISc Bangalore said, “With the advent of 5G technologies, the requirement for guaranteed high-speed data transfer will be critical for seamless operations. Other key features of 5G such as Radio Access Network (RAN) disaggregation, cloudification, network slicing will revolutionize communications, the Internet of Things and applications of AI.”
He said that with the availability of open-source software stacks, 5G becomes largely a software-based solution, which India is well-positioned to enter into in a big way.
“This programme will cover the practical, theoretical, and technological aspects of 5G Communication Systems and will be a game changer for the future career prospects. 5G provides greater capacity, improved reliability, and wider geographical coverage, at higher data speeds and the country needs to be ready with talent for building products and services around it,” he added.
Santanu Paul, CEO and MD of TalentSprint said that the company has decided to take the lead in talent creation for a 5G ecosystem.
“We are delighted to announce yet another forward-looking programme with IISc. This programme has been specifically designed to build a solid foundation of 5G communications for evaluation, use and implementation, for working professionals,” he said.
About The Programme
The PG Level Advanced Certification Programme in 5G Technologies with AI and Cloud is designed for working professionals with engineering or related degrees and a minimum of two years of experience.
The format is divided into two programmes, one spans over a 9-month Executive Programme with Advanced Certification in 5G Technologies with AI and Cloud, the other is a 6-month Executive programme with Advanced Certification in 5G Technologies followed by campus visit to IISc Bangalore, Live interactive sessions by IISc faculty and industry experts. The executive-friendly programme will ensure that the participants become early adopters in implementing 5G applications and build a strong career in a 5G powered world.

The 5G is the fifth-generation cellular network technology that provides more advantage to the users when they want to access the data. It is replacing 4G networks slowly in different parts of the world that caters to the needs of smartphone users. Othe other hand, it is important to know the pros and cons of 5G technology.
This network works faster when compared to 4G. It helps smartphones users to download videos, movies and music in no time. The network has 20 Gbps speed enabling organizations to use the same for services such as automation, advanced web conferencing. However, the uploading speeds are not over 100 Mbps. Moreover, the cell phones would need a better battery power as there are several complaints of mobile heating while running 5G.
It helps to switch between cellular and Wi-Fi wireless strategies for better performance. Also, it provides methods to use internet with high efficiency. Though the network works at high speed but it will not travel as far when compared to 4G as tall building and trees might disrupt the frequency of this network.
5G technology is the perfect choice for connecting with a whole range of different devices including drones and sensors. It gives ways to power the adoption of Internet of Things allowing industries to enhance their productivity and other things. While providing better connectivity, there is drawback of the network regarding cybersecurity which will result in hacking.
Moreover, it uses software that leads to vulnerable attacks. As 5G connects with more devices, the chances of attacks are very high. Hence, companies and businesses should protect their infrastructure with a security operations centre that will result in additional expenses.
